    Yeah saw that, I've got a couple of their cordless power tools and have had no problems with them.


    I got my airbrush from that unmentionable green shed and run it off a bloody big belt drive compressor that came from Supercheap plus a workshop quality regulator/moisture trap so whole kit cost a few bucks more than the Aldi one.

    If using a setup like mine which is set up for HP sprayguns and air tools make sure you keep the pressure around the 20psi mark and not much higher.

    I found that some of the plastics used in the cheap stuff don't get along with with thinners and solvents, best stick to water based paints

    Funnily enough, I bought an airbrush today. From the shed that shall not be named.

    Looks very much like the one in the Aldi ad. $98.

    It's an Ozito brand. I guess they come from the same Chinese factory.

    As for a review, well as I have no idea how to use one yet, I'll not offer an opinion.

    this is what I use mostly. I have larger one as well but rarely use it.

    my compressor is one size up from this, but this would do and still pump up tyres and footballs etc

    The beauty of the Ozito one I have is that the paint doesn't go through the trigger / air path so much easier to maintain

    I got the 300 piece hobby kit yesterday for around $17, Fits the dremel like a glove.
    Don't know how long the various bits will last but for that price am willing to give it a go.
    Also got the $12, 30watt soldering iron to replace my 15watt cheapo, worth getting just for the soldering station. haven't tried it yet so will see how it goes.

    I discovered my old 20w not that great anymore. Luckily I have a small butane one as well.
